Happy Spring, everybody! Doesn’t it seem brighter out? I love the bright green of the new Spring grass that is starting to come….I think it’s the prettiest color of green of them all! I also love how it’s staying lighter later in the evenings!
Well, starting tomorrow, the Goeller household will officially have THREE teenagers! (Pray for Jim and me! Ha!) Our third kiddo, Audrey, is turning 13. Happy Birthday, Audrey! Your mother and dad love you very much!
Most of the Tiger spring sports teams are starting their seasons. Track starts today and baseball and softball start on Monday. Crew starts next Saturday, and boys tennis starts on Tuesday . If you get a chance to come out sometime and cheer on these athletes at one of their games, meets or matches, I know they would love it! Go Tigers!
Here is what’s new outside…..
We are still preparing for the best time of the year for a farmer’s market! We have made our second order that will be full of ferns, hanging baskets, vegetable plants, strawberry plants, rhubarb plants, already potted flower pots, etc. Our growers produce the highest of quality, so we hope you will stop by and take a look at all the nice things once they start arriving the third week of April!
Once the weather warms up a bit, we are going to get the painting done outside.
We have added white onion sets to the market this week! They are $1.79 per pound. So, if you are wanting to plant onions, you could choose from red, white, yellow, or a mix of all three! If you don’t want to plant them in the ground, our potato bags would be perfect for planting onions! One thing I learned about planting onions is that they do not have to be in rows or as precisely planted as other vegetables. You can plant quite a few from a square that is several feet wide.
There are still plenty of Kennebec seed potatoes to plant.
Ferns are a wonderful option for a shady porch or an area that gets spotty or partial sun! We will have the traditional Boston Ferns as well as Macho Ferns, and Fluffy Ruffle Ferns! You can’t go wrong with the tried and true Boston Fern, but if you want something a little different, consider the Macho Fern which has great big fronds. The Fluffy Ruffle is described as having dense, fluffy fronds. It’s smaller and is absolutely adorable! Ferns are also a great option because there is no pruning, and they don’t need constant watering! Probably my favorite thing about ferns is that I can buy them in April or May, and they will last until well after the first frost in the fall! Last year, I bought Macho Ferns for the first time, and I loved them!
Here is a little bit more information about these refreshingly green plants! Ferns are over 300 million years old, and they provided food to the dinosaurs that were herbivores or omnivores. They purify the air by filtering out toxins. Ferns are also disease resistant, and pests do not bother them. Ferns like humid conditions, so they are great for the Mid Ohio Valley summer weather! Finally, there are more than 10,000 different types of ferns! I can’t wait to get them up on my porch!
Here’s our weekly update for inside!
There are only two weeks left until Easter! Stop in for some speckled or spiced jelly beans, chocolate bunnies, Peeps (You either love them or you hate them!) yogurt or chocolate covered pretzels, chocolate covered almonds, Dutch Delights, etc.
We can put together Easter baskets for you….in fact we would love to do that!
And don’t forget to order your from scratch bunny cake or carrot cake! See pictures down below!
Ramps are here! They are $7.99 lb. One customer said they are delicious in eggs, and she puts them in her fried potatoes. You can also eat them raw and slice them up like scallions and add them to your salads or as a garnish. They may be a little pungent for a first date or a business luncheon, but other than that, I say go for it! Lol!
Have you tried our bags of Bauman Orchard apples. They are grown in Ohio. We can get Granny Smith, Golden Delicious, and Red Delicious. The Granny Smith ones are my favorite!
As always there are strudels, pies, fry pies, pepperoni rolls, brownies, breads, cinnamon rolls, and rolls in our bakery that are fresh baked every day. We are also adding Rye bread this week! Stop in and try some!
There’s only one more week to get some of our homemade soups before they are gone for the season! Stop in and get one last cup or bowl of your favorite!
Jim picked up the Amish made fry pies from Whispering Pines Bakery this week. Come get your favorite! They are all delish!
The requested French Onion Soup Base has come in!
Corned Beef is back in stock! We weren’t sure how everyone would like it, so this is now a staple at Huck’s!

Duck Creek Candle Company is highlighting Honey Cornbread for its scent of the week. They describe it as “a delicious blend of warm, fresh cornbread baking in your grandma’s oven with a hint of honey drizzled over it.” Yum!
Florence Creamery is your chance to get local cream topped milk. You can definitely taste the freshness!
As always, you can’t go wrong with ground beef or ground sausage from Zimmerview’s Meats and Market. If you haven’t tried it, you won’t be sorry!
